Hey rossco - replying to your post from my journal:


I've started a cycle of MadCow (no, I'm not eating Bovine spongiform encephalopathy cultures) as while I liked the format of Wendler's 5/3/1, the advancement was a little slow for me at the time.


MadCow is structured similarly to Stronglifts, in that you squat every day, and only do the same 5 main lifts. However, instead of increasing the weight each workout, you increase it each week, and only do OHP/Deadlift 1/week as opposed to 3/2 weeks on Stronglifts. I've written up the plan in this post here:
